One-Click Fleet Security with Fleetsmith

When considering a device management solution, security and privacy can no longer be an afterthought, or something that is "sprinkled on top" of an existing company or product.

In this session, Zack Blum, CEO and co-founder at Fleetsmith, and Frank Yang, Product Manager at Fleetsmith, will explain how Mac admins can become security heroes, why not proactively securing your fleet is a bad idea, how attackers think about compromising your organization through your employees' endpoints, and examples of best practices including:

  • Secure zero-touch deployment
  • Instant fleet-wide macOS upgrades
  • Automatic FileVault with key escrow
  • Secure Google Chrome configuration
  • Binary blacklisting via Google Santa
  • Fast client-side deployment of fleet-wide log aggregation with Filebeat (ELK stack)
  • Advanced configuration management with Puppet and Chef
  • Managing custom scripts
  • and more!

They'll also touch on how to evaluate a device management vendor's product and corporate security, which are often overlooked but critical to understand.
